Modding weather ?

Hi,

Is there an easy way in Lost Alpha to have more sunny weathers, a simple txt file to change maybe... ?

Volumetric light is beautiful, and I don't like walking without it (three days that I have a dark grey cloudy weather in my current game...)

try to switch render mode (switch to static lightning, save game, quit, load, then set it back to full dyn or dx10) and it should change.

Uh ? That's a strange solution don't you think... ? Especially if I must do that every day of the game. Isn't the weather current system able to dynamically change itself ?

Well, thanks anyway...

I think the problem with weather is that it doesn't switch properly, changing it to different renderer might unfreeze it, it makes sense.

you dont need to change it every day lol, just told you a solution to stop the current infiniteloop bug. seems like after blowout it might not change back, but its random so its hard to track down

See my bug report here:
https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=23337&sec_id=20

Like Vintar already said, making a save with the Static Lighting renderer forces a weather reset and after that it seems to be working fine (although it's sunny most of the time, but I don't think this is the infinite weather loop thing, just a matter of Lost Alpha weather style).

You can verify that you have the same bug I had by pressing "~" to bring the console. See messages about the weather. For me it always said "current weather af_preblowout, next weather af_preblowout" so it was an infinite loop.

BTW Vintar, don't know if that helps, but I never had any blowout happen yet.

Thank you for the answers. "sunny most of the time" ; I want that !!

EDIT : yeah, weather has changed ! Now it's..... raining ! Anyway, FYI, I never had any blowout before neither.
If I do the trick again, I'll have another weather or do I need to wait now for the next one ?

it will change, just sometimes it stucks. vintar fixed it just a hour ago, but it would need some day or weeks of testing.

I did the trick outlined above because I thought the weather might be stuck and now it has been raining all the time which is getting a bit dull now.

As the OP asked, is there anyway to alter the probabilities of good weather in the game in it's current state so I can have some sunshine?

Try the R1 save again? It should reset. My weather cycle is mostly r2_alpha, af_partial and af_cloudy which makes all day look cloudy with some sun. Which is fine. If I get bored I'll do the R1 trick and maybe get some rain.

The thing is, even if you change the logic for which weathers to use (less rainy, more sunny), if you are in the situation where the weather is stuck (which the R1 save should fix) then changing those wont' do anything.
